Welcome to a classic of our times, a play that’s been staged countless times across the world and a truly timeless plot. This is Vanya, the Russian playwright and author Anton Chekhov's masterpiece of love, art, sex and attempted murder, reimagined for a strictly limited five week run. It’s on stage in London again thanks to Wessex Grove, Gavin Kalin Productions and Kater Gordon. The brilliant actor Andrew Scott returns to theatreland for a fresh new adaptation by Simon Stephens. The play is directed by Sam Yates and it opens at the Duke of York's Theatre on 21st September 2023, with design by Rosanna Vize.

Andrew Scott plays all of the characters in Chekhov’s play himself in a dazzling one-man performance. Buy quality cheap tickets for Vanya from us to see Scott portray Vanya himself, the landowner Professor Serebryakov, his daughter Sonya, his glamorous young wife Yelena, Vanya’s widowed mother, his rival in love Astrov, the tenant Telegin and the nurse Maria. As Scott said, “It’s a genuine honour and a singular challenge to bring this giant of a play to life in the West End in this new way and I’m so excited to be doing it alongside such brilliant, playful and talented people.”

Young Couples:

A big leap for one actor plays
This is a really astonishing theatrical experience and represents a major technical innovation in the theatre for plays involving just one actor. It's far more ambitious that say Jodie Comer in "Prima Facie" which as most critics agreed was also exceptionally good. Andrew Scott and his team really do pull off the ability to embody all of the characters and their interactions without any other actors other than Andrew. It's still quite a big departure from the source material of "Uncle Vanya" and is modernised and anglicised to some extent but most of the major events in the play are still recognisable. The play is also very funny and moving, with a lot of the humour deriving from the format and there is a certain amount of "nod nod wink wink" interaction with the audience. The only criticisms is not all of the lines were audible and also I felt that the ending was too drawn out and it is often better to let Chekhov's themes emerge from the play than state them explicitly.

So clever!
One of the best theatre productions you will ever see. Andrew Scott played a blinder. He used his voice and his body so cleverly to convey the characters. I haven’t commented on the music as I didn’t really notice it.
